Seawall Rehabilitation with Urethane Grouts: Fill Voids, Stabilize Soil

Jessica Williams - August 13, 2020 - Views 445

Seawall Rehabilitation with Urethane Grouts: Fill Voids, Stabilize Soil

Over time, seawalls begin to develop small defects due to fluctuating tides, and thermal expansion and contraction. As water levels rise and fall, a vacuum is created which easily pulls the saturated supporting soils through defects into the body of water – this creates voids, settlement, depressions, sinkholes, and overall instability of the structure. Avanti's injection grouts have been specifically designed to seal these defective areas from further infiltration/exfiltration by creating a watertight barrier, and fill voids that have developed by binding existing soils together preventing further erosion.

"Much has been said about waterproofing membranes, whether sheet or spray-applied or layered solutions. Within the North American market, spray-applied membranes are continuing to gain acceptance in tunnels and underground spaces. Grout is often the key behind the scenes player in these comprehensive water control solutions, controlling water, consolidating ground, and more North American Tunneling Journal reports."
